There are moments in all our lives when things start to come together - when we embrace the courage we need to do something new and different and things mesh in ways we'd only dreamed about.
For years I've dreamed of starting my own indie publishing label. When I left traditional publishing and decided to journey on my own, I'd hoped that one day I'd be able to create a company that would not only umbrella my books, but also give other writers a place to go for resources and support. I'm excited to say that this dream is finally a reality! After much planning, preparing, and hard work I'm thrilled to introduce you to Other Words Press!
Founded and operated under the belief that writing and storytelling are essential arts for the creative mind, Other Words Press is dedicated to offering quality fiction as well as services and coaching to developing writers. Other Words Press believes that the community is stronger when writers share ideas, resources, and fellowship with other creators.
This is the dream, y'all! And, it's happening!
If that wasn't exciting enough, I've also officially launched my editing services! This is a way for me to assist other writers in creating the best stories they can as well as celebrate my passion and dedication to indie publishing. I'll be available for professional beta reads, in-depth critiques, and developmental edits.
And, this summer I'll begin offering writing courses for aspiring writers! The first full self-study course will be available in June for those people who are finally ready to write that book they've always talked about. Maybe you're one of those people! Maybe you've dreamed of writing a novel and you just didn't know where to start. That's what this course will help you do! It's called Inspire: From Idea to Draft and will help writers take a small idea and turn it into a full first draft of a novel!
It has taken a ton of work to get to this point, but I couldn't be more excited. My word for 2019 is COURAGE and that is exactly what it takes to bring this dream to reality. I hope you'll come along on this journey with me as I take my passion for writing and books to a whole new level! I can't wait to work with some of you on making your writing the best it can possibly be. And, I can't wait to offer writing courses and options to aspiring writers to help make their dreams a reality. There is enough space in the world for all our stories, my friends! Someone out there is just waiting for yours!
